Hillary: I’m Taking Trump On to Make It Clear to Rest of World He Doesn’t Speak for America

During a campaign rally earlier today, Hillary Clinton acknowledged that people keep wondering why she’s directly taking on Donald Trump.

Every time Clinton opens her mouth about the GOP frontrunner, the prevailing wisdom is that it’s a pivot to the general and an acknowledgement that she’s pretty confident she’s got the Democratic nomination in the bag.

Clinton said today she’s still working hard to officially win, but is speaking out against Trump because “I don’t want anybody in the country or anybody in the world to think he speaks for anybody but himself!”

Meanwhile, at one of his rallies today, Trump dropped another nickname he may use against his potential general election opponent: “Crooked Hillary.”
